There is an increase in the amount of video hearings Social Security claimants are attending. Using video hearings has become essential to help decrease the backlog in SSDI and SSI claims. Not only are the individual hearing offices using video conferencing capabilities more frequently, the Social Security Administration is also increasing its use of video conferencing through the National Hearing Centers, located in Albuquerque, Baltimore, Chicago, Falls Church and St. Louis. If you or a loved one is going before a judge for your SSDI or SSI claim, it makes sense to speak with an experienced Social Security Disability attorney. Attorneys can help you better understand the hearing process and prepare you for your hearing before the Administrative Law Judge.
